More and more people are losing their jobs as the financial crisis goes on. More and more students are finding it harder to find occupations after years of schooling. More and more job seekers cannot simply rely on post-secondary education to support themselves in lives. Many factors are hindering future workers from getting a job. Competition continues to swell as we approach the time to enter the workforce.
In Canada, the statistics are alarming; the number of jobless young people ages 15-24 has increased by 27 000 between 2011 and 2012 (CBC “Canada’s youth face job crunch”).

By keeping an open mind, you will see the countless possibilities that await you... Let this thought fuel your work ethic.
Do not live in thoughts of the future. Think of what you will do now to get there later. Do not give up when people do not think you are capable. Make yourself...
